To the elderly woman who felt the need to teach me how to properly pronounce "hummus," to which I responded with "well I'm just going to pronounce it the American way," and then you proceeded to tell me that way was pronounced BAKA. I'm well aware of what that word means, and if I hadn't been on the job I would have been equally rude back to you. I might not have been able to pronounce "hummus" to your sufficiency in one try but at least I know it has taken you an entire lifetime to learn social etiquette and are still falling miserably short.
You say HUMOUS I say HUMMUS
